Description: Creag Mannrichean, Achnashellach, Ross & Cromarty. Cliff of folded and thrust Torridon Sandstone. The large crag consists of Torridonian (Applecross Formation) sandstone dipping gently to the right. In the foreground the bedding appears to be folded in an anticline, but the fracturing associated with the folding has made the bedding harder to follow. The scree slope beneath the main cliff may conceal further thrusts.
